Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink

Katrina Alcorn was a 37-year-old mother of three with a loving husband and a dream job when one day, on the way to the store to buy diapers, she had a nervous breakdown. Her carefully built career came to a halt, and her journey through depression, anxiety, and insomnia began. Over time, as she began to ask herself how she was unable to meet the demands of having a career and a family, she realized she wasn’t the only one.

Recently featured on Parade.com, the book is a compelling social critique about the dysfunction between the careers and home lives of working mothers, as well as the consequences to women’s health. She ultimately offers readers a vision of change at every level, resulting in a healthier, happier, and more productive way to work and live.

Ten percent of the proceeds of Maxed Out will be donated to MomsRising, a leading advocacy organization for working moms and the people who love them. To watch the book trailer, click HERE.
